Project Management

Business Intelligence & Data Warehousing Training: Project Management

Project management is especially critical for a data warehouse project. Without good management, projects are prone to being short on required resources. They are late, over budget, low quality and, most importantly, they don't meet expectations.

The data warehouse project manager must embrace new tasks and deliverables, develop a different working relationship with the users, and work in an environment that is far less defined than with traditional operational systems.

The project management course helps managers develop the skills they need to usher their projects through all phases of planning and implementation. It provides a solid basis on: test data, metadata planning, data stewardship, governance, backup planning, ROI measurement, documentation, support preparation, user training, communications planning, and other elements of a successful data warehouse.
